, with the senate set to consider gunlation after its spring recess, michael bloomberg and wayne lapierre are both promising to invest millions in that coming legislative fight. bloomberg's group, mayors against illegal guns, announced it will spend $12 million, all of the mayor's money -- not all of it, has plenty more, on ads like this one to push democratic and republican senators to back gun control efforts. >> for me, guns are for hunting and protecting my family. i believe in the second amendment. and i'll fight to protect it. but with rights come responsibilities. that's why i support comprehensive background checks. >> 90% of the public wants something, and their representatives vote against that. common sense says they are going to have a price to pay for that. >> he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restaurants. they don't want him in their homes, they don't want him telling them what food to eat. they sure don't want him telling them what self defense firearms to own, and he can't buy america. >> nbc's de

that there's a secret agenda that the nra and wayne lapierre talk about which is create a registry of all gun owners. they either want to attack the guns or take them away. >> he can say whatever he wants. this isn't about wayne lapierre. this is about a public wanting to be safe on their streets. this is about the public having the right to buy arms and the right to protect themselves and the right to use them for sport or hunting. but, also, it's about the public's right to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill. that's in everybody's interests. if you go back to 1999, wayne lapierre testified on behalf of the nra that background checks were appropriate and should be done and congress back in 1968 actually made them the law of the land, but they don't apply to 40% of the gun sales today. something like 58,000 gun dealers across this country, three times the number of mcdonald's stores, as a matter of fact, there are gun stores every place in this country, and those gun sellers -- they do background checks on all their clients. i think last year 78,000 times the governm
. >> that is wayne lapierre head of the nra. this guy he was referring to is new york mayor mike bloomberg. here with us now is democratic senator from pennsylvania and member of the foreign relations committee, senator bob casey and former governor of pennsylvania, msnbc political analyst and co-chair of fix the debt campaign, governor ed rendell. you guys, pennsylvania. huge state. huge sprawling state. filled with sports people, hunters, gun owners, the vast majority of them responsible. where are you on what wayne lapierre said? >> well, we have a million hunters in the state. as ed knows, it's a big part of our culture and pennsylvania. after newtown i spent a lot of time thinking what happened there and i made a pretty substantial shift in my position. i think we should have not only a vote but pass some of the measures we have been talking about, the assault weapons ban, the magazine clip legislation, if we can get to that, and the background checks. there could be others but those are the three main ones. even if it's only done by way of amendment when we get to the legislation itself. >
gun owners. >> already supported background checks. >> wayne lapierre greed with that back in the 1990s. he was one of 85% in the 1990s until, i guess the gun manufacturers told him to change his position. >> right. >> okay. >> right. now he parades around with this clown show literally say if they take the rapist gun from the rapist, they will come after your gun. >> if we scream rapists from getting guns and doing a background check to see if they have been a rapist or felon, we are somehow violating other americans' rights? that's just a lie. >> here is eugene robinson what he writes in "the washington pos post". the worst way to respond to the shocking massacre in newtown, connecticut, would be to let political self-interests stand in the way of meaningful action. the parents of those 20 slain children deserve a vote on the assault weapons ban. the families of 30,000 americans who will be killed by gunfire this year deserve a vote. bringing the measure to the floor of both the senate and the house is the least congress can do. we all know what is happening here. senate democrats fa
to wayne lapierre of the nra. right now the nra is the only organization or voice that has stood up and said precisely what the solution is, and it is, by the way, in place and author of the public schools in this country. it needs to be in wondered%. senate majority leader harry reid says the assault weapons ban had fewer, as he put it -- this is his language, fewer than 40 votes. fifty-one and need for passage and 60 to end closure. fifty-three democrats in the senate and two independents to vote with the democrats. those senators obviously are bucking the democratic party and the. it is why he did the smart and pragmatic thing which is not even move this thing into the package that he will bring before the senate for a vote. by the way, these senators are the ones up for reelection next year in tossup states. there are senators like mark pryor, mary landreau, k hagen, brockovich, tim johnson of south dakota. left virginia is retiring, but the race there is competitive, and the democratic candidate, whoever your she may be, does not need a feinstein votes any around their necks. a

to congress. new york mayor michael bloomberg and national rifle association's wayne lapierre each claim their views on guns have the support of the overwhelming number of americans. lawmakers are in their home states, hearing from constituents ahead of next month's anticipated senate vote on gun control. senate majority leader harry reid said that legislation would likely be debated next month that will include tougher laws and stiffer sentences for gun trafficking and increased school safety grants. a ban on assault-style weapons was dropped from the bill. >> a relationship dispute could be to blame for a deadly marine base triple shooting. the tragedy happened last week in virginia -- both the shooter, and one of the two people murdered are from the bay area. governemnt officials say sergeant eusebio lopez is accused of shooting to death corporal jacob wooley, from massechusetts. as well as lance corporal sara castromata, a 19-year-old from oakley. lopez joined the marines seven years ago. serving in both the afghanistan and iraq wars. he was heavily decorated.earning 11 awards. he wa
a counterbalance to the nra i find wayne lapierre's comments just sort of bizarre. he is basically saying that the nra can do what they do. they can run ads of the they can try to persuade senators to vote a certain way but nobody else can. and i don't think running ads is imposing your will on people. i think it is running ads and letting people be informed and make a decision and being an advocate. mayor bloomberg is being an advocate for a position and there is nothing wrong with that. heather: rich, what do you think?. >> i think that is basically right. it is a free country. you can spend as much money as you want. i think the reason why you saw a such a strong reaction from wayne la pierre going to opening marks of the segment nra, would love, love, mayor bloom to be public face of gun control in america. the man associated with intruding himself into ordinary's people he is business. who wants to ban and prohibit a bunch of different things so the nra loves this fight with mayor bloomberg. heather: really what he is trying to do here is influence votes by senators prior to the deba
